ACSA works towards ISO 50 001 conformance

February 14th, 2014, Published in Articles: Energize


The Energy Training Foundation (EnTF) recently presented its energy management system complementation (EnMSI) training and workshop with members of the Airports Company of South Africa’s (ACSA) technical and engineering member team – who have all undertaken roles and responsibilities to reduce the company’s energy consumption through a properly implemented energy management system. ACSA has already embarked on several energy efficiency projects at the various airports under the auspices of the company’s chief engineer, Dupie du Plessis, who is based in Port Elizabeth. Extensive lighting upgrades to LED technology at most runways at the regional airports, as well as other lighting system improvements have already resulted in energy savings of at least 15% . The workshop session over three days is based on the SABS/ISO 50 001 energy management system standard and takes the format of the EnMSI training course together with a consulting service. This results in an understanding of the ISO standard and its requirements.
